Snow-Covered Swamp Discussion

MoFi on Snow Business

On cards like Rimebound Dead, an ability can be paid for with a snow permanent like a Snow-Covered Swamp. My question is whether "can" means "must" in this case. Would something like a Gilded Lotus work to pay that cost or must it be a snow permanent?

I think you can add Flooded Grove, Sunken Ruins, Twilight Mire and Reflecting Poolsafely to the deck without any afterthoughts.

You might consider playing Woodland Cemetery, Drowned Catacomb, Hinterland Harbor since you are playing the full set of Duals and Fetchlands. You might even think about Snow-Covered Forest, Snow-Covered Island and Snow-Covered Swamp to add Tainted Pact to the deck.

Otherwise, nice deck!

Maybe you wanna play things like Pestilence/Pestilence Demon + Exquisite Blood/Whip of Erebos - instant speed mass removal with alot lifegain and sometimes these are the end of the game. Hatred and Whip of Erebos are a nice way to get rid of enemies too.

Next card you could add is a simple Darkness. Fogging every round? I'd take that!

Painter's Servant enables you to re-use all of your non black cards (added it to get my better lands back, my group loves to blow up my Cabal Coffers).

In order to get a gigantic Exsanguinate you could play Extraplanar Lens and Caged Sun. The lens loves to use Snow-Covered Swamps ;)

And don't forget the horsemanship! Nightmare Lash, Lashwrithe, Batterskull and Grafted Exoskeleton might fit the theme.

Hope I found something you like, +1'd

First things first, I would lower your land count to 35. You shouldn't need much more than that due to being Mono, and Black gets a lot of good ramp cards. Barren Moor and Myriad Landscape should be removed for sure. I would say Crypt of Agadeem needs testing. Personally I find it to be too slow.

Is it within your budget to get Snow-Covered Swamp with Extraplanar Lens?

Under your Artifacts, I would personally cut Charcoal Diamond due to it being a fairly weak mana rock. My suggestion would be Mana Crypt but you don't have to replace it. Coat of Arms is great but I have never found a need for it. It is something I cut. It is great when I have a lot, but if I have a lot, I should already be winning. This is what we call "Win More" but it could also hurt you. Consulate Dreadnought is an easy cut. You would usually rather attack with the Zombies. Door of Destinies is another card I would cut. It's only getting counters when you cast spells, while Gisa is usually swarming with tokens. Door of Destinies is a personal choice, and the best card I just suggested to be cut.

As you want more mana ramp, especially due to my cut of Charcoal Diamond, get a Black Market.

I don't like Graf Harvest, you already have Zombie Master, I would also include Filth. Unblockable is better than still being able to be blocked.

I just realized, you also need an Expedition Map. It can find, Cabal Coffers (95% of the time this is what you get), Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, or Reliquary Tower. Whatever you need at the time.

Hissing Miasma is okay, I think Koskun Falls is better. I don't personally run either, but again that's personal choice.

I'll get to the Sorceries and Creatures later. Those two with Instants are all personal choices.

I'm not sure how much I've helped with cuts so far as I've made a few suggestions. We will figure this out.

I was wondering why there were no Drudge Skeletons for that matter. Did you forget about the best card Snow-Covered Swamp? Dude, you should totally add Storm Crow, it's modern legal you know ?

On a more serious note you should play (or at least consider) : Pyroclasm, Anger of the Gods, Flame Slash, Nahiri, the Harbinger, Ajani Vengeant, Nyx-Fleece Ram, Porphyry Nodes, Silence, Soulfire Grand Master, Seeker of the Way...

Lacks a couple Snow-Covered Swamps, maybe take out a Swamp or a Swamp?

I'm not sure about creatures but Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is my obvious first thought. Blanket of Night is a cheap Enchantment that has the same effect. I will remind you, redundancy is important. You don't want to lose your ability to Swampwalk because your opponent removes Urborg.

Contaminated Ground, Evil Presence, and Tainted Well all provide Swampwalk but only for one opponent each. Leshrac's Rite gives one of your creatures Swampwalk.

Korlash, Heir to Blackblade is a "Swamps Matter" Commander, although I'm not sure how good he will perform. Zombie Master can be ran to give him Swampwalk as well. Squelching Leeches and Nightmare are both creatures that benefit from a lot of Swamps.

Personally I run a Ghoulcaller Gisa deck that is Zombie Tribal. The Tribal theme is primary, while Swampwalk is just a hopeful Win Condition.

I figure you also want as much land ramp as you can get, especially if you are running Korlash as your Commander. Black has some issues with this but Liliana of the Dark Realms is good. I can't think of much else outside of Burnished Hart and Expedition Map.

You will definitely want to run Cabal Coffers, I suggest using all Snow-Covered Swamp and Extraplanar Lens to double the mana from each of your Basics, while not giving your opponents any benefit. Crypt Ghast and Magus of the Coffers are also good. Lastly, Lashwrithe and Nightmare Lash are both awesome.
